  1. I did this for about three months before my dh screamed for Gain. LOL His mother used Gain so that’s all he knows regardless of the benefits of homemade. He just loves that “Does it smell so fresh because it’s clean or is it clean because it smells so fresh Gain”. LOL

  5. Thank you so much for all of the information you share on your website. When I first found your blog a few weeks ago, I received such a good feeling that there was someone out there enjoying homekeeping and motherhood as much as I do. I want you to know that through your website, I am truly beginning to change my home for the better. I have learned some wonderful things that I never thought about such as making sure I am done with the housework by 8:00PM. That has already made a big difference. And the biggest one has been the “relations” in my marriage. I began implementing your suggestion of “at least once a week”. It has worked wonders for my marriage.

    I just wanted to take some time out to thank you for just some of the things I have learned from visiting your blog.

  8. Bako, I have heard that it is hard to find Fels Naptha in some areas. When researching different recipes for the soap I saw that some called for ivory soap and many others. Although I cannot vouch for the results it is something worth looking into. Having to oredr the soap will most likely run your cost up.

  9. Finding the Fels-Naptha is really hard here in Oklahoma….I don’t want to have to buy it online…arrrgggh. I’ve wanted to make this for a long time now. I wonder if it works in an HE washer?
